Mexican Revolution

June 14th, 2013

This credibility crisis and diverted goals invites us to reflect on the true meaning of a revolution, made Assembly that aims to reverse a social order to establish another that improve social conditions. Villegas drew this reflection as a determinant for understanding the origin of the crisis in Mexico, i.e. What were the goals raised the revolutionaries and why it sold out (Cosio, 1972: 103) However, as the author himself points out, the Mexican Revolution never had a draft clear and uniform in terms of its fundamental objectives. This aspect must add that all historical process changes over time its initial purposes: some amending, others remain from the nominal point of view, and some more are mutating Depending on the Caprices social and temporal, but none is absolutely intact to the passage of time. The loss of course perhaps was an eminent result, given the lack of mobility in the spheres of power. The process of modification of the revolutionary principles in Mexico, according to Cosio Villegas, is a special case because many of their original thesis have coexisted with new ones that have gone by appending and sheltering under the revolutionary coat of arms, by paying to the creation of a smorgasbord that lacks the necessary clarity to establish the original objectives that led to the revolution of 1910 (Cosio((, 1972: 104) Despite all this mixture of new ideas and old about the revolution and its purposes, it is possible to find at least three important points: to) conviction generalized towards the indefinite concentration of power in a single person or group of people.

(b) modification of the agrarian system and the consolidation of the labor system. (c) the nationalist function of the Mexican Revolution. Although the education from the Constitution of 1917 has a preponderant role, Cosio disdains its importance, despite the vigorous momentum post-revolution Governments had given education in Mexico.
